Frankly, this is the best Management book that I have read! It is indispensable especially if you have anything to do with international management or if you are going overseas on business/personal reasons. It helps you understand the various cultures around the world and will definitely help you avoid the cultural blunders in other countries. Get it! I have rented this book but I will buy one for myself as a guide to international cultures. Very well written! Ms. Adler is a true genius to take such an extraordinarily complex topic as culture and then similify it in such a clear, lucid manner! The author is a genius! I hope I can meet her in person one day and pick her brains! My professor at UT Dallas, Prof. Habte Woldu, is also such a wonderful teacher! He is the perfect professor to teach this course on International Management and this is the best book for this course! Thank you Ms. Adler!

Format: Paperback
I bought the first edition of this in 1991 & it is brilliant - and accurate. I have spent much of my career working for US companies that continue to make the most basic mistakes when dealing with "aliens", such as the need to exert power & control, authoritation vs persuasion. One of the basics - which I'd like to see Dr Adler cover - is the assumption that because some other countries also speak English that American behaviours & assumptions apply in those countries. The book also has a secondary advantage that it could be read as a "how to do foreign policy" book for the US, given Gulf 2 issues with say Europe.

Essential reading for anyone that really wants to be global & not just multi-national.

Order barely made the cutoff date and when received, I can definitely tell someone printed this book out in their house. Pages are out of order (from the original 5th Version, as I had a classmate scan me the Chapters being used). Chapter pages don't match and even missing pages. Would not recommend this product/seller even if it was an emergency!

I had to buy this book for my organizational psychology class for my human behavior program. I don't see myself wanting to read it again once I'm done with my masters like I plan to do with several of my other books. This book seemed awkwardly written and often times boring and drawn out.

This is a textbook for one of my graduate courses. It's a fairly easy read, presenting the subject matter in a clear and interesting way (though that perspective could be somewhat skewed by my background in business/international studies/international business).

Adler has done a good job of creating an international focus for her topic. I highly recommend it. I'm assigning it at the MBA level. You can save a lot if you order the fourth edition - I don't find enough difference to necessarily justify buying the fifth.

Ok. So I purchased this book for class. It was very dry and boring to me. The information was very useful, but I found it very hard to read. I don't know if it is the organization or what. If you have to purchase this book for class, you have my sympathy.

This is a really creative way to understand international business to adjust to our changing demographics. It gives good examples to understand the concepts, as this was new information to me.
